As a child, I grew up in a house of amazing people who had different ideas when it came time to work your way back to wellness. My father studied a lot of different healing modalities including homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy, Bach flowers and those practices that are now considered main stream.
I have great memories of the use of magnets in our house also. I suffered from an early age with debilitating migraines and I always remember that at the onset of the lights and pain, my father would instruct me to grab the magnet and rub it over the affected area. After 20 minutes, the pain was gone without medication.
So how does this happen? As a new spokesperson for an amazing product ‘The Woolrest Biomag’, I thought I better find out the science behind the healing.
How Magnets Relieve Pain:
When held against the skin, magnets relax capillary walls, thereby boosting blood flow to the painful area.
They also help prevent the muscle spasms that underlie many forms of pain- apparently by interfering with muscle contractions. And they interfere with the electrochemical reactions that take place within nerve cells, impeding their ability to transmit pain messages to the brain.
Of course, chronic pain can be controlled with aspirin and other over-the-counter and prescription painkiller. But unlike pain medications, magnets do not carry any risk of side effects.
So long live the magnet I say!
No wonder people sleeping on a bio mag firstly have a better nights sleep as it’s so snuggly and secondly, within 6-8 weeks notice their pain has reduced and they can move more freely! I guess my dad was just a few years ahead of his time…..
